Are you a new patient?
Register with The Marlow Medical Group
We are a partnership practising in our purpose-built surgery in Victoria Road, and at two branch surgeries at Hambleden and Hurley.
Surgery consultations are normally by appointment and there are specialist clinics in various fields.
The Marlow Surgery is responsible for training qualified doctors in general practitioner skills.
The premises are accessible to wheelchairs and there is a toilet for the disabled.
We have four designated disabled parking bays. We also offer a hearing induction loop facility for the hard of hearing - please ask at reception.
Results of tests are available online or by telephone between 12.00pm and 5.00pm.
Please telephone 01628 405551.
Your Doctor will have reviewed the test results and left a comment as to the follow up required, if any.
The person giving you your result is only able to give you the comment written in your medical records by the doctor.
If your results have been requested by a consultant they will be given a copy.
Please read the ‘How does it work’ section before requesting your result.
You may also register to use online appointments and repeat prescriptions, although for security reasons this is a separate process.
Following up the results of any investigations is your responsibility. Please make sure that you either call the results line, check online or make a follow-up appointment (if recommended by your GP) to get the results of your blood tests, x-rays, scans or other tests arranged by the surgery.
You will not necessarily be contacted about abnormal results so make sure that you have checked the outcome of tests.

If you look after someone who, through illness, disability or frailty cannot manage without you, then you are a Carer.
We are interested in identifying carers, especially those who may be caring without support. As a carer, you are entitled to have your needs assessed by Adult Care Services. You can print off and complete a CARERS IDENTIFICATION AND REFERRAL FORM and return this to Marlow Surgery. Forms are also available from Reception. You will then be contacted by someone from Adult Care Services to arrange an assessment and your GP can register you as a carer.
The Marlow Medical Group hosted a Carers' Information Event on Thursday 16th May 2013 at 1.30 - 3.00pm in the Doctors' House Annexe.
The event iwas organised in conjunction with Carers Bucks and informed patients of the support and services available to them. We also helped patients to register as a carer, if they had not already done so and provided details of how to apply for a Carers' Break.
Carers Bucks is a registered charity which supports carers of all ages from all communities who look after a friend or family member who cannot manage without them. They offer a range of services, advice and support to help you in your role as a carer. You can contact them on 0300 777 2722 (calls charged at local rate), email email@example.com or visit their website at www.carersbucks.org
